Summer Home Maintenance Tips from THE FIX Construction Services


Maintenance Tip #1: Exterior Paint Touch-Ups

This is a quick outdoor home maintenance tip that will give a boost to your home’s exterior appearance. Now that it’s warm enough to work outside, you can finally touch-up the paint on the outside of your home. If you can’t remember the exact color of your home, you can ask a paint professional at your local paint store to come out and help you find the perfect match. This can be a simple weekend summer home maintenance project to get you started on that home maintenance checklist.


Maintenance Tip #2: Wash Exterior Windows

Summer is the perfect time of year to wash your windows from the outside. This is one of those things that doesn’t get done very often, so you may need to use a little elbow grease to get your windows squeaky clean. Simply fill a bucket with hot soapy water and get scrubbing. If you wash your windows more than once a year, you may be able to get away with just using Windex, but a bucket of soapy water and a sponge will usually deliver the best results.


Maintenance Tip #3: Clean or Replace Window Screens

Washing your exterior windows won’t make much of a difference, if you don’t also wash your window screens. Take off all your window screens to your house and gently scrub them with hot soapy water. If your window screens are too filthy to be cleaned, you may just want to replace them.


Maintenance Tip #4: Clean Your Home’s Exterior

From stains to moss to bacteria, dingy roofs, siding and decks not only look poorly from the curb, but can also contribute to an array of other household problems and even shorten the lifespan of your home. While pressure washing can damage your home and lead to expensive repairs, soft washing is a safe, eco-friendly, biodegradable option that can boost curb appeal, increase energy savings and extend the lifespan of your home


Maintenance Tip #5: Reverse Ceiling Fans

It’s a good idea to reverse the direction of your ceiling fan during the summer so that it spins counter-clockwise. This pushes the air straight down, creating a nice breeze. To do so, shut off the fan and wait for the blades to come to a complete stop. Once everything is still, use a ladder or step stool to locate the direction switch, this will probably be on the side of the fan above the blades. Flip the switch in the opposite direction and then turn the fan back on.


Maintenance Tip #6: Clean Your Air Conditioner Filter

This summer home maintenance tip is essential to keeping cool. Every air conditioner has a filter that should be cleaned out every two weeks, especially if it is running at an all-time high. You can clean the filter of dust by washing with warm water or using a vacuum cleaner. If your air conditioner is newer, it may have a self-cleaning function.


Maintenance Tip #7: Check Your Furnace Filter

Getting tired of dust? We haven’t even scratched the surface. Your furnace has a filter and, just like your A/C unit, it needs to be cleaned. All you have to do is turn off power to the furnace and then locate the filter behind the service door. You may need to unscrew a panel or two. Remove the filter and give it a wash it if it is a reusable one. If the filter has a cardboard frame, you will need to replace it instead of washing it.


Maintenance Tip #8: Washing Machine Maintenance

Your washing machine is one of those appliances that needs some light maintenance every now and then. When your washer is not in use, inspect the seal between the door opening and the drum for areas of soil buildup or any stains. If you find any, you can clean it with a mixture of ¾ cup of chlorine bleach and a gallon of warm water. Wipe the area with the bleach/water solution and then let it sit for about 5 minutes. Now, wipe dry with a clean cloth, and let it air dry. This will remove any odors and keep your clothes from getting stained by dirt deposits inside the seal.


Maintenance Tip #9: Clean and Inspect the Patio, Driveway and Walkways

Another great summer home maintenance tip is to thoroughly clean your walkways and driveway. The key to cleaning a patio, driveway and walkway is to use a pressure washer. Before you get out your pressure washer however, it is a good idea to check these areas for cracks and weeds. Once you have inspected everything, get out that pressure washer and wash away everything that has been sitting on there for the past year.

Have Travertine? Think no maintenance is necessary? Every once in a while high traffic areas need to be cleaned on your travertine pavers. We at, Hello I Live Here, make our travertine part of our beginning summer cleaning program. High traffic areas and travertine near trees should be cleaned to keep the travertine beautiful. We use DuPont™ StoneTech® Professional Stone & Tile Cleaners. We simply follow the products directions, apply with a mop. If it’s a bad area, we use a more concentrated mixture. It’s not necessary to seal your travertine, but keeping high-traffic areas clean helps keep its beauty. Remember be responsible by reading bottle directions for proper disposal of empty containers and rules for dumping in your state.


Maintenance Tip #10: Wipe Down & Clean Baseboards

Baseboards are often overlooked when it comes to cleaning. It can be tough to muster up the energy to get on your hands and knees and clean the trim, but it is something you want to do at least once a year to keep dust and dirt from building up. A damp cloth and a little patience is all you need to clean up the trim around your home.


Maintenance Tip #11: Clean the Garbage Disposal and Dishwasher

This home maintenance tip isn’t necessarily just a summer chore. But it is important to clean out your garbage disposal and dishwasher every once in a while. You can easily clean out your garbage disposal by flushing it with hot water and some dish soap. To clean your dishwasher, you should add 2 cups of vinegar to the bottom of the machine and run the machine on low wash. You can also make your own garbage disposal refreshers.


Maintenance Tip #12: Hose Inspection

Inspect the hoses to your washer, dehumidifier, dishwasher, icemaker, toilets and refrigerator for any signs of leaks, cracking or wear and tear. You should replace these hoses once every 3-5 years, but it is important to regularly check for any signs of leaking.


Maintenance Tip #13: Attic and Basement Inspections

Attics can be claustrophobia-inducing, but you do have to brave those tight confines at least once a year. You want to check your attic for any indication of pests or insects, water leakage, mold or mildew, and turn off the lights to check for any sign of peeking daylight. You will also want to check your basement for any indication of pests or insects, water leakage, mold and mildew, as well.


Maintenance Tip #14: Rent a Dumpster Before You Remodel

Considering a bathroom remodel this summer? Be sure to rent a dumpster for all the drywall, tiling and other leftover debris. How big of a dumpster? Rob Robillard of “A Concord Carpenter” recommends using a 15 or 20 yard dumpster for an average-sized bathroom remodel and emphasizes having a plan in place to manage your remodeling debris. “You need to think about trash, you need to think about a dumpster: where you are going to put the dumpster. How are you going to get the trash from the bathroom into the dumpster?” If the dumpster is close enough to the house, you can set up a trash chute outside of a window that runs directly into the container. If the dumpster is near or on the street, you can use barrels to carry the trash out to the dumpster instead.

Barons Market Backroom Beer Pairing to Feature Mike Hess Brews – June 21, 2017

Welcoming longer days and warmer nights, Barons Market announces an evening of perfectly paired food and brews. At its June 21 Backroom Beer Pairing, the family-owned community grocery store and Mike Hess Brewing will pour craft brews and serve summer appetizers at all seven Barons Market locations in Southern California. “When we picture summertime, we imagine friends and family enjoying food, drinks and good company outdoors in the place they call home,” says Barons Market’s Vice President of Marketing Rachel Shemirani. “We want to replicate that nostalgic, comfortable experience to kick off summer with a Barons twist. Best of all, all proceeds from this celebration go to organizations ensuring all our neighbors have enough food for healthy, active lives.” Barons’ Backroom Beer Pairings transform loading docks and stock rooms into food and local brew speakeasies. Friends will gather at their neighborhood store to sample Mike Hess brews paired with easy-to-replicate dishes made from the market’s selection of all-natural ingredients.


The warm-weather menu includes:


  • 8 West Orange Honey Wheat – Named for the highway to the sun-kissed Pacific shores of San Diego, 8 West is brewed with local orange peel and more than two pounds per barrel of pure California orange-blossom honey – paired with green goddess spring salad.
  • Grapefruit Solis IPA – Using only real fruit, this beer kicks it up a notch by taking an awesome San Diego-style IPA and pumping it full of citrusy grapefruit – paired with chicken curry skewers.
  • Hoptoitus IPA – Hints of pine, grass and citrus with a semi-dry finish, this beer is an award-winning classic – paired with blue cheese sliders.
  • Umbrix – Rich, deep, and intensely complex, the roasted malts give this ale flavors of coffee, chocolate and toffee, while the rye malt and generous hopping rate result in light spiciness – paired with Barons brownie à la mode.


Barons Market will donate 100 percent of proceeds from its San Diego locations to the San Diego Food Bank. In 2016, the local market raised more than $26,000 for local organizations through its Backroom Beer Pairings. To kick off a summer of food and fun, head to one of Barons Market’s seven Southern California locations from 6 p.m. to 8 p.m. on June 21. Tickets will sell out, so purchase yours for $15 today.
